By now I am halfway through my course at Point Blank Online. This week’s lesson was all about audio effects and building scenes in the session view (more on this below). At this point in the course we have covered the basics of Abelton from its functions, instruments, and effects. The remainder of the course ahead will address arranging a track, polishing it with effects, automation, and finally mastering it.
